She is walking with husband David, daughter Xanthe Christie, 14, and family pet Em, a King Charles Spaniel cross.

David’s first wife Jane received hospice-at-home care in London before she died.

Sarah, who lives in Tring, said she was given bereavement care after her first husband Jonathan died in 2005.

Sarah said: “We would never have traversed the waves of grief and the self-absorption without the support we had.

“As a GP I have so much respect for the work of Iain Rennie nurses with my own patients in Berkhamsted. I would always support and join in with their fundraising efforts.

“The hospice is part of living in Tring.

“Iain Rennie Hospice at Home is very good at organising local community-enriching events like this one and the Midsummer Fun Run.

“Even the Iain Rennie shops have a big place in Tring life.”
